Milan have named their squad for Sunday’s home tie with Palermo, missing Giampaolo Pazzini and Kevin Constant.
The Rossoneri are just two points adrift of Napoli in second place and welcome bottom of the table Palermo tomorrow afternoon.
Pazzini is still out of action after suffering a micro-fracture to his fibula, joining long-term absentee Nigel De Jong in the stands.
Constant sits out a ban after his red card against Genoa.
It is possible Stephan El Shaarawy will be rested after looking a little less sharp than usual of late.
Milan squad for Palermo: Abbiati, Amelia, Gabriel, Abate, Antonini, Bonera, De Sciglio, Mexes, Yepes, Zaccardo, Zapata, Ambrosini, Boateng, Flamini, Montolivo, Muntari, Nocerino, Traorè, Balotelli, Bojan, El Shaarawy, Niang, Robinho
